Burkhard Norton*

Agroecology, as a holistic approach to agricultural production, offers promising solutions to address the challenges of food sovereignty and social justice. By integrating ecological principles with social and economic values, agroecology emphasizes the importance of sustainable farming practices, biodiversity conservation, and equitable distribution of resources. This article explores the principles of agroecology, its role in promoting food sovereignty and social justice, and the potential challenges and opportunities associated with its implementation. Through case studies and examples from around the world, we illustrate how agroecology can empower communities, enhance food security, and foster resilience in the face of environmental and social disruptions.
